“We are getting a creative player who can play in every position up front,” said Ajax director of football Marc Overmars.

“Some of our players will be leaving this summer – we need to plan for that, so it’s great that we’ve been able to finalise this transfer.”

Brazil Under-23 player Antony came through the youth ranks at Sao Paulo, making his senior debut in November 2018.
